Wholecloth Quilt – A Finish

The baby quilt is finished and I couldn’t be more pleased with the way it turned out.

Wholecloth baby girl quilt Minky

I absolutely enjoyed making this quilt. First, there was no piecing so that meant I could just get right to the fun  – quilting. And since the customer is my sister, I didn’t stress over making the right design choices. I just let it flow. Is it ‘perfect?’ No. But it looks beautiful and that’s what counts.

FreeForm quilting

I adore these little hearts that are sprinkled here and there. They are so fun!

As you can see, I found a great gray for the binding. It is Kona Medium Gray. I think it is the perfect touch and gives a modern feel to the quilt.

Flower on Wholecloth Baby Quilt

I echoed some of the pebbles, which made them look like flowers so of course I had to add some leaves.

I know the front of the quilt is suppose to be the white, with the Minky on the back. But I love that Minky side *so* much, maybe it should be the front. I’m sure baby will love cuddling on the softer Minky side. 🙂

Minky Wholecloth Quilt

I already have an order for another one of these in a minty teal color. I have some time for that one (baby isn’t coming until June) but I can’t wait until I can start on it. I see so. much. more. Minky in my future!

    This is a beautiful quilt, and your quilting is wonderful. Lucky baby. I hear so much about how minky stretches and the edges shred and it’s messy. What do you see as drawbacks, and why do you like it anyway?

  13. Jasmine says:

    This turned out great! I have finally decided what project I am going to try this quilting on. It will be perfect for my new table toppers in my new bedroom. Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. Jayne says:

    Wow! The quilting is just gorgeous! It makes me want to make a whole cloth quilt, but first I better learn to FMQ better than I do! Love the pink and grey combination!

  15. Heidi says:

    So pretty and soft. Curious what type batting you used?

  16. Tish says:

    I love the medium gray for binding. The quilt is just absolutely beautiful. I’m excited that there will be another one in your future. That means more yummy pictures for us to look at.
